Solo player: Fun to play, great co-op modes and 'Legendary' is on par with 'Veteran' from COD2. The story is boring and the cut scenes were diabolically boring. Too much effort was put into hype, not enough into an actual story. On 'normal' it took me 10 hours to (pretty much) complete it. Fun to play though, just no where near the hype. It's not even top 5 on the 360. Multi player: I can't say enough good things about this. It's like a gamer actually put this together. Easily accessible stats are finally here! You have to make a custom game to actually get a worthwhile match (or you'll end up playing hammers on Snowbound all night). Everything about it is sick though. The class system is nice, the stats are nice, abused by cheats already, but among friends it still means something. But like I said, the multiplaer has set the standard thus far. Graphics: On point but not 'wow'. I didn't even think anything of them till I saw you lot talking about them. They're nice, not a talking point when 3 other games are probably better atm. Sound: Don't care. If it works, I'm good with it. Overall: Much better than Halo 2. The story is boring, redundant and outright fucking nerdy. Fun to play, but it's a 6 hour thing. Hard to enjoy it THAT much when there's no meaning, more so when you come off the back of Bioshock. The hit system still sounds like everyones shooting Nerf guns at each other. There's no real 'impact' when you shoot someone, which takes away alot of satisfaction. I'd say it's a great game, but it wont stand the test of time. But it's definitely set the standard as far as multiplayer goes. 8/10.
